Five Highway Workers Killed on Md. Roads Since 2013Abstract:
Ever since Laurie Moser’s husband was killed while working on the highway in June 2007, Moser has become an advocate for highway safety. She testified for automated speed camera enforcement in work zones and she testified on highway worker safety laws. She also speaks at public events. The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) considers Moser a hero for her work in public safety.
Since January 2013, five highway workers have been killed by drivers in Maryland and four were killed in work zones. Maryland’s SHA has made an effort to prevent work-zone crashes with its speed camera program, SafeZones. Maryland is one of 14 states that allow automated speed enforcement.
